Larry Laffer is a short, tacky, balding, forty-year-old man who has been living with his mother until recently. He used to be in the software business, but decided to leave everything behind as he moved to the city of Lost Wages in pursuit of sexual fulfillment. Clad in a white polyester leisure suit, Larry finds himself outside of Lefty's Bar, determined to finally lose his virginity - or commit suicide if he is unable to achieve that goal before dawn. Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards is the first game in Al Lowe's Leisure Suit Larry series, largely inspired by the text adventure Softporn Adventure, though with a greatly enhanced script containing more humorous descriptions and dialogue. The gameplay is similar to other third-person Sierra adventures: a text parser is used to input commands for interaction with a graphical environment. Progress is achieved by collecting various items and figuring out which of those may be essential for conquering the hearts of the several female characters appearing in the game. The game allows the player to access most of its locations (a bar, a casino, a convenience store, etc.) from the very beginning, with only a few key ones being barred due to the lack of a crucial item. Moving between some of the locations can only be done by cab. Paying for those trips, as well as procuring some of the items, requires the player to manage Larry's finance by gambling at the casino. Typical of Sierra games, progress is tracked through a set amount of points, awarded for advancement or minor actions. There are several ways to die in the game, most presented in a humorous fashion. The game contains adult situations and semi-implicit depictions of sex.

my first Computer game ever. I don't how I managed
to Play it without speaking the English language properly at that time, but I finished it. I highly recommend the VGA-Version from 1991 with a mouse-ridden Interface though.

...but is the game dying at the slot machine for anyone else? It's "rebooted" four times now at that point for me.

One of the best adventure games I ever played. And yeah, I felt really dirty while playing it. This is my favorite Leisure Suit Larry game (second best is Love For Sail) and I love it.
The whole series is awesome. If you're not familiar with other Larry games, check out this Larry fansite:

Subject: Don't let your parents find out!
This was the closest a 13 year-old computer kid could get to getting 'digitally laid.'

I remember being panicked that my parents were going to walk into the room whilst playing my pirated copy of this little doozy.

Beyond the goofy gags and slightly sexual cheap thrills this was actually a fun game to play.

Hit esc and the menu will come up. You should be able to save.

Subject: Get ScummVM
This game works perfectly with the ScummVM emulator unlike here.

Subject: Adore this game, but unplayable
Larry can die. Without being able to save your progress, this game is unplayable.

Used to crack into this game as a kid when my parents left the house. Been waiting for the day I could play it again. So sad!!
Reviewer: MarcellaShandor - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - January 8, 2015
Subject: So cool but does anyone know how to save?
I remember from when I was a kid and played this F5 was save and F7 was restore but I don't know how to input any drive. The ":" key wont show up and I am lost. Been a very long time since DOS!
